Pediatric Epilepsy Research

Our multidisciplinary team of physician-scientists conducts various research projects to help promote patient care and better educate families. We participate in studies funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH), pharmaceutical companies and our own investigator-initiated studies. We hope our research efforts will improve treatment for children with epilepsy.

New Epilepsy Research Center to Advance Treatments

Epilepsy specialists from Lurie Children’s are collaborating with adult researchers in epilepsy and other disciplines through the new epilepsy research center launched by Northwestern Medicine’s Institute for Translational Neuroscience.

The new epilepsy research center will initially focus on Dravet syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy that begins in infancy and often does not respond well to therapy.
